The EU's medicines watchdog said on Friday that it expects Johnson and Johnson to submit an application for its coronavirus vaccine "shortly" after it published "promising" results from a large trial.

"This is currently subject to a rolling review which precedes the formal marketing authorisation application submission," said Cooke.
